Lovely neighbours

My neighbour,  not what you could call a gardener but keeps his garden tidy,  has offered to cut my lawns and hedges for me if I find them hard to do while I am having my treatment. I may well have to take him up on the offer. 

As you say,  good neighbours are hard to beat.

Morning all.  The sun is shining and I have no appointments today.  Guess where I will be.  After I have been to get some MPC. I will have to set the timer.  One hour in the garden then a break for a cup of tea,  and repeat.

About 25 years ago I was cleaning / maintenance supervisor in the local shopping centre.  The only thing that we used to clean any stainless steel was. .......... baby oil.  It worked a treat.  I don't know if has the same things in it now though.

Hazel.  My treatment doesn't start for a couple of weeks yet.  These appointments are all preparation.  Checking things that could be damaged by my treatment and meeting the support teams.

With It being a new build, I would guess that you have builders rubble underneath the soil.

Stupid tablet keeps adding letters and missing out words. 

It's not my fault.  Honest.

Thanks Chey.  I had porridge for my breakfast too.  I must admit I cheat and use those sachets of instant porridge that you put in the microwave  because they are something I can prepare and eat easily, if I don't rreally feel like eating, know that I should.
